The entire programme will be taught in English and will also be offered on a part-time day basis over six semesters.
Popular culture in its increasingly varied contemporary manifestations draws immensely on literary tradition. The programme will seek to explore the complex engagement of these two conceptual categories with one another as well as their shared areas of theory and critique.
Seven different departments of the Faculty of Arts will offer lectures and seminars on the following key areas, among others: popular culture, cultural theory, comparative literature, theory of literature, biblical literature, modernist and postmodernist literature, film and the literary canon, film and technology, representations of the Mediterranean, graphic novels and comics in general.
The course is not restricted to graduates of language and literature but welcomes Bachelor Honours graduates (Second Class or better) as well as those holding a Bachelor degree at Category II or better.
